What is a Repeat Prescription?

A partnership between the patient and the prescriber that allows the prescriber to authorise a prescription so it can be repeatedly issued at agreed intervals, without the patient having to consult the prescriber at each issue.

How to request a Repeat Prescription

As a result of the Coronavirus (Covid-19) situation repeat prescriptions will take a little longer than usual to process.

PLEASE GIVE US AT LEAST 5 WORKING DAYS NOTICE FOR YOUR REPEAT PRESCRIPTIONS TO BE PROCESSED AND SENT ELECTRONICALLY TO YOUR NOMINATED PHARMACY.

 

You can request your medication in the following ways:

  • Via online services (request are reception if you are not already signed up for this) https://www.kensingtonpark.co.uk/prescriptions/online-prescriptions/
  • In person in reception (please use the ‘right hand side of the prescription)
  • Sending the request in the post with a stamped address envelope (please use the ‘right hand side of the prescription)

NOTE: YOU CAN NOT SUBMIT REQUESTS ON THE TELEPHONE

Repeat Prescribing Medication Information for Patients

Electronic Prescription Service (EPS)

The practice issues all prescriptions (both acute & repeat) via EPS which means that your prescription goes directly to the pharmacy of your choice.  This is more beneficial for our patients as it will save unnecessary visits to the surgery.  You can simply pick up your medication from your nominated pharmacy.

PLEASE GIVE US AT LEAST 5 WORKING DAYS NOTICE FOR YOUR REPEAT PRESCRIPTIONS TO BE PROCESSED AND SENT ELECTRONICALLY TO YOUR NOMINATED PHARMACY.

Unfortunately certain medications cannot be done through EPS due to safety reasons. These medications include:

  • Controlled drugs like (Tramadol, Morphine, Oramorph, Fentanyl, etc)
  • Private prescriptions
